If im probably going to take a 3rd year/ gap year should I still apply to unis.

    • Thread Starter

    I will probably (Not sure yet) do a third year at my sixth form. However should I still do my UCAS application? The reason for the gap/ third year is that I dont have much of an idea of what I want to do at university.
    So if I apply to unis can I reject them after then decide to do a third year. Im not certain that I will take a gap year.

    Also can you do an AS and A2 in one year if I do take a third year?

    I would definitely apply this year! If you don't want to go and decide to take a gap year, then you can just reject your offers without any trouble.
    If you don't apply then you don't have any option and you are forced to take a gap year.
